The colour taking over Pinterest in 2018

It’s not what you’d expect

If you’re not ready to take on ‘Greige’ in your interiors, perhaps try ‘Mushroom’. Pushing through the interior trends undergrowth (and with a slightly more attractive name), the tone leans warmer than grey but cooler than beige, while remaining neutral.

Paired with other earthy shades, we’re finding it works well with natural textures and as a nice accent in an all-white interior. Here’s how to bring the colour into your home.

1. Custom cabinetry

Bespoke cabinetry makes the most of space and is a great place to bring in a little colour. For an entranceway like this, the warm tone lends a friendly welcome into the home.

2. Kitchen cabinetry

In a step away from an all-white kitchen, a coat of moody mushroom picks up warmer tones in a marble benchtop and gives a sophisticated feel to simple, pared back cabinetry.

3. Shake up shaker-style

As it’s not a dark tone, mushroom even works well in overhead cabinetry to carry the scheme through the whole kitchen fit-out. A darker colour might visually enclose the space.
